If you're going to go to the trouble of building your own amplifier, you might as well dress it up, right? Rather than just throw on a wig and some lipstick, creative tinkerer Mark William Chase decided to give his amp a steampunk theme and the results... the results are glorious.
Chase describes the build process over on Instructables, but it's sufficient to say he put a lot of effort into not only selecting and collecting all the necessary pieces, but sticking them together in a fancy way.
At first glance it looks like an organ (well, a steampunk organ), but once you peer inside, its true purpose is more obvious.
OK, you might need to know a bit about electronics to decipher the above image. He also built a matching pair of speakers, which look equally amazing:
